Cluster Scholarships are entirely independent. The school and outside concerts subsidise them (Cluster Recital at Pime Theatre, Mito Fringe, LiveClub Il Maglio, Associazione Il Florilegio, Fondazione Fibrosi Cistica, etc.).
The aim is to allow students who qualify for the grant, to pursue and develop their music skills and abilities at our school.

1 - Criteria

Scholarships are granted to students between 12 and 26 years old, based upon the following criteria:
  • Financial need
  • Lesson attendance, punctuality and performance in group related courses during the year
  • Student’s talent, potential and level of knowledge
  • Participation in ClusterContest2016

2 – What is the financial value of a Scholarship?

Scholarships can vary between 100 and 500 euros.

IMPORTANT: in order for the scholarship to be valid, the student must not interrupt their studies during the year, otherwise the grant will have to be entirely reimbursed to the school.

The reimbursed amount will be put towards the next year scholarships.
